Submission + - SpaceX Receives USAF Operational License (spaceref.com)

FiggyOO writes: "For those of you who witnessed the launch of SpaceX's Falcon 1 rocket, launch 3, you will be glad to hear that SpaceX has received a license to launch from space complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on the Florida coast. This Launch complex is just south of launch pads 39A and 39B which have been used to launch the space shuttles, and will continue to for a few more years. This launch complex will enable them to launch the much anticipated Falcon 9 rocket which will eventually carry the Dragon capsule. In doing so, SpaceX hopes to fill the void between the end of the shuttle program, and the constellation program.
They have already begun moving into the launch complex, including moving a 125,000 gallon liquid oxygen tank on the back of a semi."
